VIDEO: Salomon Freeski TV - The Controller

As an avalanche controller, Kevin Fogolin gets to work and ski in some of the most spectacular mountains on earth. In Salomon Freeski TV's latest drop, they follow him on his job as he brings down some of the most impressive avalanches ever caught on film.

The video is an excerpt from the feature-length documentary film, SNOWMAN. Filmed by Mike Douglas, the film is an incredible look at avalanches, and the people whose lives are centered around the lethal power of nature.
